5.0 out of 5 stars Like wine, it gets better and better as times goes by 8 Aug 2006
By Julio Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
I saw this movie for the first time in Chicago, in the winter of 1980. It impressed me a lot, and its images lingered on my mind for a long time. I saw it again 12 years later and still found it a good movie, despite its violent sexual issues. I've revisited it once again a few days ago in a wonderful DVD version and I was deeply impressed. This is one of those movies similar to wine: as time goes by, it gets older...and better. No doubt about it, it's quite crude and may shock a large number of viewers. The incest theme can only be compared to the treatment that Louis Malle had previously given to the subject in "Le Soufle Au Coeur" in 1971 (again, the relation between a mother and her teenager son). However, two aspects make me prefer this film rather than the excellent Malle movie: Jill Clayburg'interpretation and the wonderful operatic background that Bertolucci gave to his drama. Besides- and this is no novelty coming from Bertolucci - it's such a beautiful movie form the visual viewpoint: wonderfully shot, edited and with a fascinanting tempo that allows you to enjoy every second of it. If you haven't seen this movie, don't hesitate in getting it: you might get disturbed, it will probably shock you, but be sure that you'll see cinematographic images as you've never seen before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get with it, Region 1! 20 Jun 2008
By Thomas Caron - Published on Amazon.com
This is a movie that's been on the top of my "Most Wanted" list for years. Finally found it on a French made DVD here in Shanghai, at a supermarket of all places. Bernardo Bertolucci's 1979 follow-up to "Last Tango in Paris" and "Novocento" stars Jill Clayburgh as an opera diva who has a semi-incestuous relationship with her teenage junkie son after she develops a psychosomatic impasse that prevents her from singing. Talk about loaded. Bertolucci's trademark brew of sex and politics is as full-on as ever, but the real subject of the movie is how do you get your chops back once you've lost your way as an artist.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dysfunctional relationships 5 Dec 2012
By G. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
This 1979 film by Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci is an unusual blend of psychological melodrama and visually impressive photography. The storyline is mainly about dysfunctional relationships. The late Jill Clayburgh plays an aspiring opera singer, deeply frustrated by a loveless marriage and a delinquent son born out of wedlock. When her husband dies, she travels to Italy to renew her relationship with her former lover, only to see her son fall further into drug addiction. There are bizarre twists, with hints of bisexuality and incest. Relationships remain tangled, and the ending is ambiguous. All this plays out against magnificent backgrounds, particularly scenes of the Italian countryside. The result is a film that is strangely murky and unresolved.
5.0 out of 5 stars One great under rated movie 13 Feb 2014

This film is in English so don't let the Italian title put you off. Wonderful characters, involving story and opera to boot. I cried and cheered at the TV screen at the very end just before the credits rolled.
4.0 out of 5 stars Potent drama, indeed! 27 Sep 2011
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Bernardo Bertolucci after having shaken the world with his Last Tango in Paris, presents us with a raw emotional and affective picture involves a weak son confronted with the highly successful nature mother, a renowned opera singer, happily married until a tragedy occurs. A heart attack ended the life of her husband. From the desolate state of solitude, both are enclosed within their emotional shells. But the son seeks refuge in drugs and not to lose it, has made a determination. But there is still a secret from the past to unravel.

Bertolucci unleashes his feverish love of Opera Itaiana and complete this existential framework with some pieces magnificently assembled into this terrible and distressing dramatis personae.

Jill Claybough (April 30, 1944 - November 5, 2010) was always one of my favorite actresses in her generation. Her role is fascinating, compelling and nuanced with complete spontaneity.

An original masterwork.
